Biological reasons do not explain the disproportional incidence of morbidity (sickness) and mortality (death) among poor and Aboriginal or Maori people.

Social reasons do.
(Waddell & Peterson, 1994, p. 11).
For to care for the sick and dying and do nothing about those things that cause some groups of Australians or New Zealanders to get sick more often and live far fewer years than others is obscene;

to feed and shelter the poor and not query the politics and economics of poverty in either country is myopic;

and to run readily accessible private hospitals for the rich and leave the poor queuing for public hospitals, and not ask governments, medical associations and churches why, is irresponsible.
(Waddell & Peterson, 1994, p. 12).
The levels of mortality and morbidity in these peoples are linked to the socially unjust societies in which they live. They are less likely to access health services; when they do access services they are not always treated justly; and wealthier people live healthier lifestyles than do poorer people.

Those who work in health care are exhorted to engage in anthropological and sociological analysis of the inequities that exist in illness occurrence, in illness care and illness prevention.
